Pokimane Reacted To Myth Move
Imane “Pokimane” Anys, a Twitch star, remarked on her friend and fellow streamer Ali “Myth” Kabbani’s shocking decision to switch to YouTube. She claimed it was unexpected but ultimately the right one, at least in her opinion.
On July 11th, Myth made the announcement, and the following day he hosted his debut stream. He claimed that YouTube had made him an offer of money that would be “stupid to refuse.” Pokimane, however, believes that it offers Myth much more than just the bag.
She said; “He wasn’t one of the first people I would anticipate to go to YouTube. However, he is someone that I feel like, with time, has enjoyed streaming a little bit less and less, or maybe just enjoyed the streaming lifestyle a bit less and less.”
The data back up her assertion. In contrast to the 2000+ hours per year he maintained between 2017 and 2020, Myth only streamed for 829 hours on Twitch in 2022 and 1657 hours in 2021. Pokimane can relate to it because she has suffered with it in the past. She believes that Myth switching to YouTube will release some of the pressure off the grind and provide him some breathing room. The consistently well-liked Twitch streamer continued, “I feel like it makes sense for him to take a deal like that. I think he’s really happy with the reception. That’s good.”
Along with Sykkuno and Lily “LilyPichu” Ki, Myth is one of many streamers who have migrated to the Google-owned platform in 2022. There could be even more yet to come. After Sykkuno’s unexpected switch, Disguised Toast claimed in May 2022 that he knows at least five more people are moving. Three more will follow, assuming Myth and LilyPichu are two of them.
YouTube is now Twitch’s main adversary because to the presence of other notable figures like Dr Disrespect, Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo, Timothy “TimTheTatMan” Betar, and Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter. Myth is a wonderful addition to that roster and is well-positioned to soar with his current channel’s 4.5 million followers.
